>>60185048 agreed. hit to death was their best album. pure creative bliss/
that said, it was a wild ride down to the bottom as it slowly devolved into what we have now: some random shit like steven drozd makes up a cheesy piano line and wayne sorta babbles on top of it, full on inspirational speaker mode.
in some parallel universe, steve never tried heroin and ronald jones would still be a part of the band, and they would be making the most awesome music.
fav non hit to death track: "lightning strikes the postman"
>>60185654 >wayne sorta babbles on top of it, full on inspirational speaker mode I saw them live a couple of years back and the show ran over by 45 minutes because wayne was clearly high as a fucking kite the entire time and stopped to deliver 5-15 minute stoner speeches between every fucking song.
took acid at a free flaming lips show on the portland waterfront. one of the best shows ive been to, it was awesome. they did lucy in the sky with diamonds at the end as it was getting dark and the lights they had set up made it look like it was raining diamonds.
>>60187407 The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev had different strengths. Mercury Rev at their best were more blissful and euphoric, with themes relating to ego death (Yerself Is Steam), drugs and alcohol (Boces) or fantasy (See You On the Other Side), while the Flaming Lips took an approach that looked more at humanity - hope and light in the face of pure despair.
>>60184991 Great band, most of their albums are excellent, even the ones that aren't are still decent. The Terror is one of their best, so I'm excited to see what they do on the next album. >I even liked Miley's album
